Busy Sunday

Today was a great day for wrapping up some things.  Here’s a few photos.


In the morning I made bread. I have been making bread for 15 years. I thought I knew what I was doing and don’t know why I watched a video recently on how to make bread. I am so glad I did, though. I found out I’ve been doing it all wrong. I’ve been mixing it up far too dryly. So, I changed my ways and now I am enjoying baking bread again. I am thrilled, actually and want to make lots and lots. This is good news because we stopped buying bread quite some time ago and it has frankly felt like quite a chore to keep up with my family’s needs.

The jam is from grapes I picked September 11th. I started out making juice but my juicer idea didn’t work so ended up doing it the hard way. That sucked. I saved all the pulp and got some of it separated from the seeds so I used that for jam.

The photo of the hay is from a trip up the Methow Valley where we secured our hay supply for the winter and brought home a ton. What a relief. I’ve had a few bad hay experiences in the past and this is gorgeous hay and it was a decent price.

In the truck on the way to get the hay I finished up the sweater I started for myself in July. I have loved knitting this pattern. It is my second go around with it and it just works out really well. It’s a top-down pattern, knitted in the round. It’s from the book by Ann Bud The Knitter’s Handy Book of Top-Down SweatersThere’s a Ravelry link for it too:  http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/basic-top-down-raglan—adult

I hope you all had a wonderful day, too. This fall weather has been drop dead gorgeous!
